RIO DE JANEIRO Cheap Nike Air Max Womens , April 5 (Xinhua) -- Pele has accused Barcelona forward Neymar of falling to ground in the hope of winning free-kicks.

But the Brazil legend said the 22-year-old is better at keeping his feet than when he arrived at the Camp Nou last summer.

"I think Neymar looks to create fouls and situations that aren't there," Pele told ESPN.

"He also had the same problem at Santos. He has improved a lot in that aspect though because things are different in Europe. Football is a harder, more physical game there. It's a great chance for him to grow as a player. "

Neymar has scored 17 goals from 40 appearances for Barcelona after his 57 million-euro transfer from Santos last June.

BEIJING, May 10 (Xinhua) -- China is hoping for a fresh start in diplomatic relations with the Philippines' new government.

With an unofficial count of votes showing Davao city mayor Rodrigo Duterte has won the Philippine presidential election, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said, "China hopes the Philippines' new government can work in the same direction with China, properly handle our differences and get bilateral ties back on track with concrete actions."

Lu said at a regular press conference that China has always attached great importance to maintaining relations with the Philippines.

"However, China-Philippines ties have suffered from severe difficulties in recent years, due to well-known reasons," Lu said, alluding to the two countries' territorial disputes in the South China Sea.

Duterte has called for multilateral talks involving the United States and Japan as well as rival claimants to resolve these disputes, but Lu ruled out this possibility.

He said China advocates the dual-track approach proposed by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Under this, the directly concerned states would negotiate in line with international law while China and ASEAN countries would work together to maintain regional peace and stability.


Duterte wins Philippine presidential election: preliminary results

MANILA, May 10 (Xinhua) -- Davao city mayor Rodrigo Duterte has won the 2016 Philippine presidential election, according to an unofficial and partial tally of votes cast as of 2:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Based on 87 percent of valid ballots, Duterte pocketed 14,499,396 votes, followed by Manuel Roxas at 8,680,203 votes, the statistics from partial and unofficial Comelec Transparency server showed.

WASHINGTON, June 12 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday failed to approve the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) legislation Nike Air Max Womens Outlet , which would have given aid to U.S. workers who lose their jobs as a result of U.S. trade deals with other countries, delivering a major blow to President Barack Obama 's trade agenda.

The U.S. House rejected the trade measure in 302-126 vote minutes after House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said on the floor that she would vote against the TAA. "If TAA slows down the fast track, I'm prepared to vote against TAA," she said.

Under the rules for considering the trade package in the House Nike Air Max Womens Sale , the TAA had been packaged with trade promotion authority (TPA) bill, which would grant the president the fast-track authority to negotiate trade deals that cannot be amended by Congress. A vote against the TAA means the trade package, which passed the Senate last month, could not become law for now Nike Air Max Womens Shoes , though the House on Friday voted 219-211 in favor of the TPA bill.

Democrats have traditionally supported the TAA portion, but are generally skeptical about the TPA measure. Liberal Democrats and activists from labor unions have launched campaigns in recent weeks to block the TPA legislation, arguing that trade deals have hurt U.S. workers and increased income inequality. They also said that voting against the TAA is the only way to stop the fast-track of trade deals.

Earlier Friday, Obama traveled to Capitol Hill to lobby members of the House Democratic caucus to back his trade agenda. Asked about the vote Nike Air Max Womens , Obama said "I don't think you ever nail anything down around here. It's always moving."

Failing to advance the trade legislation would delay the conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, a top priority of Obama's second-term economic policy.

Other TPP participants have signaled that they would like to put their best offers on the table and conclude the Asia-Pacific trade deal, which covers 40 percent of the global economy, only after the Obama administration has secured the TPA from Congress.

"If we don't do this Cheap Air Max Womens , we will send a signal to the world that America is not reliable," said House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, who voted for the TAA measure and the TPA bill. "In the global economy, if you're standing still Air Max Womens Outlet , you're falling behind, because other countries are negotiating trade agreements without us," he warned.

Friday's failed vote doesn't mean the end of the Obama administration's trade push. The House could vote again on the trade legislation next week, according to the news website Politico.

The White House on Friday downplayed the defeat as a " procedural snafu." "We have a situation where we have got a clear bipartisan majority in the House. We have to work our way through the procedure so that can make its way to the president's desk Air Max Womens Sale ," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a regular press briefing.

"I urge the House to pass TAA without delay so that more middle- class workers can earn the chance to participate and succeed in our global economy," Obama said in a statement after the vote.
